About heritage

Our heritage in New South Wales is valuable and diverse.

Heritage includes the places, objects and stories that we have inherited from the past and want to protect for future generations. It gives us a sense of our history and provides meaningful insights into how earlier generations lived and developed. It also enriches our lives and helps us to understand who we are.

Our heritage includes tens of thousands of years of Aboriginal culture and landscapes, and historic buildings, monuments, gardens, archaeological sites, shipwrecks, bridges, industrial structures, streetscapes, conservation precincts and intangible heritage.

We work with communities across New South Wales to know, value and care for our valuable and diverse heritage. 

Acknowledgement of Country

We recognise the traditional custodians of the lands and waterways where we live, work and play. We acknowledge Country which always was and always will be Aboriginal land and show our respect for elders past, present and emerging.
